PS3 System Software Update (v4.11)

PSBlog: Later tonight we’ll be releasing an optional system software update (v4.11) for PlayStation 3. This minor firmware improves certain aspects of system software, and is not mandatory to connect to PSN.

Again, this update is optional in the US and Canada, and can be downloaded by selecting System Update from the Setting column of the XMB.

Key part of the sentence: "This minor firmware improves certain aspects of system software"

Thanks for the input Captain Obvious

Frenza1619d ago

The update is mandatory in EU..

CynicalVision1619d ago

vstep is right, at least in the UK it's mandatory.

torchic1619d ago (Edited 1619d ago )

yup true. wanted to play some LBP2 online but couldn't without the mandatory software update.


In Brazil (SCEA runs PSN here) it's mandatory too.

Don't know about other SCEA territories (USA, Canada, Mexico, etc), have anyone tested to verify if it's really optional anywhere? (not that it's a bid deal anyway)

otherZinc1619d ago

WTF! Again?

This is ridiculous!

Armyless1619d ago

Why is an update ridiculous?

deep_fried_bum_cake1619d ago

It's ridiculous because people like otherZinc can't be bothered waiting a short while for their service to be improved. People seem to think that there are far more updates on PSN than there actually are.

ziggurcat1619d ago

yes, it's utterly ridiculous that sony would want to improve their system and your experience by offering FW updates...

edwineverready1618d ago

Cra2yey31619d ago

Doing this cause 4.10 is not smooth, it kinda broke the Internet browser.

Snookies121619d ago

Actually the internet browser was broken on the previous update before 4.10, it would freeze all the time, 4.10 fixed it quite a bit, but it's still not where it was before these updates. Can't watch videos smoothly like I used to. :\

RioKing1619d ago

yeah, gotta watch those videos smoothly


Snookies121619d ago

Lol, well when they mess up to the point of a frozen image on the screen half way through with audio still going... That's when I have some issues with it is all I'm saying.

Dee_911619d ago

kma2k1619d ago

so this update is for software and not the hardware

bwazy1619d ago

Really? Darn, I was hoping the update world add 256mbs of ram to my system :(


KingOptimus7771619d ago

It was a question my god whats up with the disagrees

SilentNegotiator1619d ago (Edited 1619d ago )

Because updates are for the system's software. What you asked was very redundant.

Like asking if an oil change is for your car or just the oil tank.

But hey, there's nothing wrong with being ignorant in some subjects. But your post was like posting my example in a car enthusiast forum. You'd get lots of funny responses and disagrees (if such an option existed on said forum).
